Once Christmas and Boxing Day are out of the way, it's common to feel a little deflated. But wait, New Year's is next - surely reason enough to hold onto that festive feeling?
If you live in or around Stoke-on-Trent and you're looking to see the New Year in with style, here are four suggestions that might just tickle your fancy…
Laugh Out Loud at Regent Theatre
If you like your comedy, then you'll love this. See the New Year in with four side-splitting comedians inside the grand setting of the Regent Theatre. A reasonably priced ticket gets you a comfy seat and here you can grab a few drinks and see 2017 with a chuckle or two - just mind you don't get singled out by one of the acts.
Electric NYE All-Nighter at The Sugar Mill
Hanley's Sugar Mill is synonymous with top quality live music. Over the years, it's hosted some of the UK's best bands and artists, as well as many a messy indie disco. If you're in the mood to dance and let loose with your mates, the NYE Electric All-Nighter is on from 9am - 6am with DJs playing a broad selection of rock, indie, and dance floor classics. Plus, it's only £7 to get in.
The Moat House
If having a hearty meal away from the numbers is more your thing at NYE, then the Gala dinner at Festival Park's Moat House may be the place to go. For a competitive price per head, you can enjoy tasty four star dining and kick back with friends and family until the clock strikes midnight, and if you're feeling sleepy later in the night, you can always book a room at the hotel.
Leek Ale Trail
Leek is a little out on a limb transport-wise, but it's easily accessible by taxi and if you're looking for the ultimate pub crawl, the Leek Ale Trail is hard to beat. The town is beautiful during the festive season and with 13 pubs to enjoy in a compact area, there's plenty of choice to say the least. We suggest starting at The Roebuck for a pint of Titanic Ale before moving across the road to The Famous Cock Inn - after that, the choice is yours.
Whatever you decide to do this New Year's Eve, we hope you have a great time, and we look forward to seeing you in 2017. Keep your eyes peeled for new industry insights, property news, destination guides, and exciting new projects from Rockett Home Rentals.
